We economically empower people creating new livelihood opportunities, providing innovative training and starting small businesses to build better futures.

Building opportunities, not charity

Empreza Diak builds innovative opportunities with communities for sustainable livelihoods in a market that works for all.

We know charity helps. But when we give one fish we give one meal. When we build self-confidence, capacity and help start sustainable micro-business, families can get the fish by themselves!

Building capacity to change lives

Our Training and Outreach unit has an innovative training methodology focused on Relevance, Participation and Mentoring, to realize its mission of Empowering the Lives of the most vulnerable and impoverished people in the country.

Innovations to fight poverty

Timor-Leste depends on oil and gas. 90% of consumed goods are imported, even those that could be made locally. We believe in the power of innovation to bring social change and empower people!
